Taipei, July 7 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) tweeted in Japanese late Saturday, offering her condolences to the victims of Japanese flooding and saying that Taiwan is ready to provide any necessary assistance to them.

The president also expressed hope that the victims can recover from the disaster soon and that the areas hit by days of rain will be restored as soon as possible.

Taiwan is also afflicted by frequent heavy rain and has a deep understanding of how severe such disasters can be, Tsai said.

Heavy rain in many parts of Japan over the past several days have cost the lives of 35 people, with at least 47 still missing.
